Snow overview for France
Monday 26 January 2015

Most of the northern and western parts of the French Alps caught some new snowfall over the weekend, although the southern Alps missed out. Light snow was falling in these areas again on Monday 26th January, but it the south some sunshine was still to be found.

Tignes (51/110cm) picked up 5cm of light dry snow on Sunday and the Ski Club Ambassador in resort reported some great conditions as a result. At the other end of the Espace Killy, some great skiing was also reported in Val d’Isere (51/110cm).

The Portes du Soleil is offering some good skiing, especially on the upper slopes. Avoriaz (100/150cm) offers the pick of the conditions as it sits at high altitude, although the Ski Club Ambassador in resort reported some icy patches on resort runs later in the day. 189 lifts were in operation across the area on Monday 26th January and all of the links were open.

A period of persistent heavy snowfall is expected for the northern and western French Alps between Thursday and Sunday, with up a metre of fresh snow forecast during the period. Unfortunately the southern resorts such as Isola 2000 are expected to miss out on significant falls.

Cauterets (100/170cm) in the Pyrenees currently has one of the greatest base depths in the country and saw a further 10cm of fresh snow on Sunday 25th. Lots more is forecast for the Pyrenees this week and Cauterets may pick up more than 70cm of fresh snow.
